Pop your cherry, Op!

You can use jarred Hungarian cherries in this: But make sure you use kirsch. You can leave out a bit of the white sugar or just deal.

That looks good, R2.

Would these cherries be good for a cherry pie if I bought more jars?
|by Anonymous||reply 4||04/13/2019|
not really OP. To make a cherry pie, buy frozen unsweetened cherries.
|by Anonymous||reply 5||04/13/2019|
Yes, R4. They're the ones that you're supposed to use.
|by Anonymous||reply 6||04/13/2019|
Anything you like OP. I love cherries, fresh or preserved. You could put them in puff pastry as little tarts, blitz them to purée for ice cream, add the purée to vodka for a cocktail base, decorate a cake, put them on your oatmeal or just stick a few in your martini instead of olives and call it a night.

My neighbor in France served dark cherries with a slice of Roquefort cheese and they tasted delicious together. But only if you like the sharp earthy flavor or Roquefort. Some people don’t.
There is also a fruit custard like dish called clafoutis (not sure of that spelling). That’s pretty delicious, too.

There is this recipe but you probably need more than 3 jars.

I like to cook them in the juice with a little sugar and lemon peel. Once cooled, I use with my plain Greek Yogurt for breakfast. Decadent!

You do the same thing you do with anything else from the dollar store. You give it to the poor and go buy some REAL cherries.

Make a Watergate Salad and decorate the top with the cherries and some pecan halves. It's a cheap tacky dessert salad but it is delicious on a hot day.

Clafoutis. Usually it's done with fresh cherries with the pit still in, but preserved will do.

R40 with the pits?! Are you a dentist?
|by Anonymous||reply 44||04/14/2019|
R44 Nope, that's how we usually do it in France. The pits add a bit of flavour (but you could replace that with a little bit of kirsh) and when you know they're there you pay attention so you will not lose your teeth. Most people I know like it better that way, but that might also be because that's how we had it growing up.

So this thread inspired me to make something with this product. I used the recipe I linked to at R9 (for the cherries topping part only) and combined it with the Williams Sonoma' cake batter (only, not the topping) recipe below. Came out perfect and family loved it.

The OP's cherries are the same brand of cherries available in my local international market. Good deal. I'd love to be able to buy these frozen, but they aren't available in my part of the country. The last time I splurged and bought them frozen, the dry-ice shipping was 1.5X the price ($48) of the cherries ($30 for 10 lbs).

Use them to make a Black Forest Mousse Gatteau. Pastry Chef Julien Picamil demonstrates how.
|by Anonymous||reply 62||04/15/2019|
These kinds of cherries are packed in a shit-load of sugar. I would recommend making a basic biscuit dough with milk and/or cream (could be bisquick for all I care), adding a bit of extra melted butter to the dough, then spooning it over the jarred cherries and baking at 375 for about 50 minutes or until the dough has browned on top and the cherries are happily bubbling underneath. I would never add them to something that already has sugar in it, such as ice-cream. You'd need to have an insulin pump standing by to avoid a diabetic coma........

This should make you VERY happy OP. Those very same cherries at Amazon are $11.75 for only two 12.5 oz. jars. The same size jars you bought at Dollar Tree.
I tried posting the actual Amazon link but Datalounge wouldn't accept it because the link was too long.

Much of the food at Dollar Tree doesn't come from the US, last food item I looked at there was canned in Egypt. I barely trust food canned in the US, and I don't trust food not from the US or Canada.
Shipping from the other side of the world is a lot of added cost to a product, then it sells for a dollar, I worry that that added cost might just come from the safety of the food.
|by Anonymous||reply 69||04/16/2019|
In general, I don't worry about food from the EU, because most countries in the EU have a vested interest in the promotion of their foods as safe and healthful and the regulations for food in the EU are quite stringent - much more so than food regulations in the US. However, China, which produces most of the canned food sold in Walmart, Target and other big box stores, is another story. I wouldn't eat any canned item from China, because the water is widely known to be polluted. I would be cautious about some foods from Russia and the former Soviet Union, because of possible shortcuts in food safety and the system of bribery to get around regulations.
|by Anonymous||reply 70||04/16/2019|
R70 doesn't know what he's talking about. Virtually no mainstream or generic brands sold in Walmart or any other big box store comes from China.
The EU and the USA's food standards are roughly similar. There are some differences, but they aren't huge. And for every scary detail you can find about USA food manufacturing rules and standards, you can find something about EU rules.
Dollar stores do sell a considerable amount of food from China and other countries. It's easy to tell by reading the label. The American brands do not come from China.
I have never seen food from Russia except in an international/import shop.

Make your own cherry-tussin cough syrup. Strain out the cherries and throw them away. To the leftover syrup, add dextromethorphan, crushed up vicodins, and sudafed to taste. Bottle it up. Shake before serving.
